World’s most cost-efficient hydrogen fuel cell car on sale today
June 23, 2006 We can’t speak highly enough of the educational and sheer novelty aspects of the H-racer fuel cell car we first wrote up in May. Measuring only 16cm x 7cm (6.5" x 2.8" inches!), the H-racer is the smallest hydrogen car in the world and uses a real fuel cell that converts hydrogen fuel into electrical energy without combustion. The only exhaust is water and the car does not use any batteries! In terms of price, well the H-racer is only $40. $80 buys you the entire set including the car, the refuelling station and its solar panel. In the future, the Hydrogen Station will be able to “refuel” other compatible and innovative hydrogen powered gadgets or toys. The car is now officially on sale online.
Once topped-up with hydrogen fuel, the H-racer runs straight at speeds exceeding 8km/h for up to 4 minutes – not bad for the world’s smallest hydrogen car. The tiny amount of hydrogen used keeps the product user-friendly and safe for ages 8 years old and above.
